ExtremeSpeed (Japanese: しんそく Godspeed) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation II, in which it was the signature move of Arcanine (only in Pokémon Gold and Silver). Later in that generation, a special Dratini was created that knows this move.

Effect

Generation II to Generation IV

ExtremeSpeed inflicts damage and is an increased priority move. If the target does not use an increased priority move during the round that it is used, ExtremeSpeed will go first regardless of the user's or target's speed. If the target also uses a move with an increased priority of +1 during the same round that the user uses ExtremeSpeed, the attack order of the users will be determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that ExtremeSpeed is (or is attempted to be) used, ExtremeSpeed's increased speed priority will not be reset. Subsequently, it will only be reset on the turn after the user wakes up or is defrosted, or if the user switches out.

Generation V

ExtremeSpeed now has +2 priority.

Trivia

  • ExtremeSpeed is tied with Sucker Punch for the increased priority move with the highest base power.
  • Despite its in-game description, in generations II through IV, the move ExtremeSpeed had the same priority as many other increased priority moves, and a few other moves such as Feint and Helping Hand would even go before it. As of Generation V, however, its +2 priority makes it faster than all other increased priority damaging moves (though some non-damaging moves still surpass it).
